The Best Time to Go on a Safari in Uganda

If you want to catch a glimpse of the stunning wildlife in Uganda, we strongly recommend visiting between:

  • June and August
  • December and February

As the two dry seasons of the country, these months offer optimal weather conditions for trekking. There’s less rain and ample sunshine! Because of the increase in temperature, the wildlife gathers around water sources, making it easy for tourists to catch sight of their favorite animals.

What Should I Pack?

When packing for your trip, make sure you keep the weather, planned activities, and locations of interest in mind. Leave room for deviations; with so much to see and do, you’ll most likely end up adding more adventures to your itinerary!

Pack safari-friendly clothes that ooze comfort. The last thing you want is to feel uneasy in the middle of a day-long adventure. Opt for light layers of clothing in colors that blend in with the landscape, e.g. olive green, beige, brown, khaki, etc. Avoid flashy colors and whites; the more neutral your clothing color palette, the better!

Pack a comfortable backpack, walking shoes, lightweight hiking shoes, sun protection, binoculars, sanitizer, a small torch, and essential toiletries. If you’re packing anything that shouldn’t get wet, make sure you place it in a Ziploc bag.

Of course, don’t forget to pack a compact medical kit. With electronics and essential documents in place, you’re ready to go!

Local Ugandan Dishes to Feast On!

No safari is complete without a taste of the local cuisine and fresh ingredients! Make sure you indulge in the delectable tropical fruit, including fresh papayas, pineapple, succulent mangoes, refreshing watermelon, and jackfruit.

In addition, treat yourself to Luwombo (meat cooked in a banana leaf), Kikalayi (fried pork), Mandazi (donut served with cinnamon), Muchomo (roasted meat), and Rolex (rolled eggs).
